There have been some really good posts going around this week on Twitter, so I have captured some of them here for people who might not be on Twitter 24/7 or at all.
Luke Pearson on the whole Delta business at AboriginalOz h/t to Cady on the Otterday thread
@ebswearspink comments on the defence of Delta by MammaMia, on her tumblr The Ramblings of that girl called Ebs
Eurasian Sensation with An Aboriginal perspective on blackface. This one dates back to the Hey Hey its Saturday controversy, but is still very relevant.
Sunili Govinnage on Mia Freedman’s comments on Delta’s tweet.
Ruby Hamad in Daily Life on When Racism becomes a white person’s issue.
Jennifer Wilson at No Place For SheepDear Clementine Ford. How I feel when you talk about me. I also need to note that Clementine has responded on Twitter to Jennifer and apologised. (TW for discussion sexual abuse)
Update: Racism 101: Black Face vs White Face whats the difference (speaking in theatrical terms)
Update 2: Saman Shad Why are we debating ‘blackface’ in 2013? via @horrorshowflick, @muminprogress (Saman’s Twitter handle) and @vivsmythe
Update 3: I don’t really understand how Tumblr works but anyway this is Karen Healy’s and this cartoon on Angelina Jolie is on it. Cartoon by rosalarian.
Update 4: Further thoughts from Sunili on her tumblr Calling it racist…
I’m sure there are many more that I have missed feel free to let me know in the comments. Thank you to those people on Twitter and in the media who have once again heaved a sigh, picked up their shovel and gone back to try and make a dent in the huge wall of ignorance and white privilege.
As always, read the comments on linked articles at your own peril.
ETA: lots of ableist language abounds in these links too.
